PHILOSOPHY of MJSHS ATHLETIC PROGRAM

Competitive athletics plays an integral part in the educational program at MJSHS.  The challenges associated with competition create learning experiences for all athletes and coaches.  Interscholastic athletics offer the opportunity for students to be a part of a team, to serve their school, community, and to develop intellectually, physically, and emotionally.  Athletes must be taught attitudes of good sportsmanship, fair play, and a respect for individual and team.
